Happy Friday! Today we have something really special to share with you. ASE has been working with Dr. Hoffman and his team from Healing The Children to put together a Columbian night TOMORROW at the Copa Cabana in NYC. We jumped at the chance to work with Healing The Children when we heard their story.
Dr. Hoffman has been traveling to Neiva, Columbia with a team of doctors and surgeons every year for the past nineteen years. Originally, the goal was to provide cleft lip and palate surgery to children in Columbia. He saw the need for medical care and has worked tirelessly to expand the amount of doctors going to Columbia so that he can help as many of the thousands that wait in line as possible.
Now, with a team of more than thirty, Dr. Hoffman will embark on his biggest trip yet from May 17th to the 24th. They anticipate performing over 100 surgeries and treating at least 600 children with the help of plastic surgeons, speech pathologists, geneticists, and orthodontists that can continue the children’s healing once Dr. Hoffman’s team is gone.
This is such an amazing cause, please check out the Healing The Children website for more information. We hope to see you this Saturday but if you’re not in the NYC area, please consider donating to help Healing The Children get the supplies and doctors they need so they can keep this going for twenty more years!
